very much, it is a pleasure. >> you have been involved in computer science most of your adult left. >> i have a ph.d. >> rose: yes. that qualifies you. how did you get involved in this, though, the technology of voting? >> well, in 2003, a colleague of mine, david dill, a professor at stanford discovered that silicon centrally, santa clara county was about to buy voting machines to be used there and several of us were just astounded because as computer scientists we know that the computers and the voting machines can have software bugs or even hidden malicious code so we got involved. >> rose: as all computers. >> like all computers, exactly and so we got involved, with trying to stop this purchase, in silicon valley and right in the heart of silicon valley and we didn't succeed. >> rose: you could not change the direction. >> we lost three to two. the election officials wanted to believe the vendors over us because the vendors assured them everything is safe. >> rose: and there was your appointment to the international workshop on international voting president clinton, this book

government's role in infrastructure, in science and technology, would take us so far away from what we need, i wish president obama had the revenues to do more, but it is the republican side that is blocking that because that party has one idea only. and that is to cut taxes for the rich. we have this multi-brazilian there running for office. his money is in the cayman island. he pays 13% in taxes. he says the most important thing is to cut the tax rates at the top for the. it is mind-boggling that we have this kind of blatant candidacy. people are hurting, people are upset. that is why this weirdness even has a choice. but it would take as exactly in the wrong direction. president obama could have done more and would have done more if the republican opposition had not blocked the end of the bush era tax cuts for the rich, for example. so romney is in quite a position to be blaming president obama for that when it is exactly this side that has made the kind of recovery we need so fleeting and evanescent. we need a strong recovery, but the policies he is recommending would be the opposite of

of these countries that allow them to succeed. the next thing is how to be able to take that, which is science, and apply it to the art of teaching, and where the right balance is. the concern to often is where you divide metrics on the measurement site, the more teaching itself will be focused on metrics. i think really it comes down to figuring out what happens in that classroom, and that interaction between a teacher and a student. there are all sorts of technologies that improve that interaction. you want that teacher pay attention, and you want that teacher to be able to subscribe to a bigger community of teachers and practitioners. >> what is the priority for the pearson foundation? >> we are really interested in helping teachers and celebrating teachers. to the degree we can, working with other organizations, to get the word out about the practices, both in their classrooms and in their profession. >> some of the materials are available through you worldwide. >> pearson has a big investment in supporting teachers. we try to connect people, organizations like teachers unions, ministries

of marine science says the number of reefs has dropped from 100 to 47. since 1985. the scientists identified two main causes of coral decline. the crown of thorn star fish is growing rapidly in number. the fish feed on the coral. and ocean warming is bleaching the coral. the scientists say this prevents the reef from recovering after cyclone damage. they worn coral cover could halve again by the end of the next decade if current trends continue. >> we believe that if we can take action on one of the things we can directly control, the crown of thorn starfish, it may leave the reef in a position where it can better withstand some of these climatic impacts. >> the reef extends more than 2,000 kilometers off the coast of northeastern australia. >>> officials and locals in india pulled together to pull one endangered species from the mud. they spent ten hours digging an indian rhinoceros from a swamp in the northeastern state. about 2,300 rhinos live in the national park, two-thirds of the world's population of the endangered animal. one of the rhinos strayed from the park after it was hit by fl

in 2010 and not so well in 2008. clinton said this is not rocket science, that what republicans want to do is they want to make the 2012 electorate look more like the 2010 electorate and the 2008 electorate. and clinton said he had never seen in his lifetime an effort to restrict the franchise that he has seen today. clinton grew up in arkansas. he knows what this kind of politics is about. he was there. he knew people there during segregation. i think for him it is a very, very disturbing to be going back to such a place, to be having the kind of conversations we are having now that you would have before the civil rights act of 1964 was passed and before the voting rights act. . tavis: is this a short-term strategy or long term? is this a strategy to get rid of barack obama, the first african american president? or is this a strategy they think it can win long-term for them, the strategy of voter suppression? >> i think they are playing a short-term game. it is not just about president obama but holding power every level of the electoral process. but i think what they are betting now is t

makes plastic models belter than tbel better than the japanese. love the intricate ones based on science fiction anime. >> to prepare the displays, lin got together with his friend. the work came naturally. and their entire generation grew up tinkering with plastic models. no detail is too small. not even window frames. all in all it takes three days to complete a single model. what they made is true to the structures, right down to the relief and the exteriors. i want people to take a pz tiff view in saving the houses. if we can protect values through the models, the houses may survive after all. but the arcade houses, unprotar protected by any regulations. they aren't officially registered as assets. lin and his friend hope their efforts will help protect the old homes before the only ones left are plastic models. >>> lots of sunshine, here in tokyo. time now for the world weather forecast. here is rachel ferguson. >> let's get you a check on tropical storm, sitting to tt east of the philippines. it picked up the piece, moving 15 kilometers an hour. tropical storm gaemi. it is going to

to finance the transcontinental railroad, let's start the national academy of sciences, let's start land grant colleges, because we want to give these gateways of opportunity for all americans, because if all americans are getting opportunity, were all one of the better off. that doesn't restrict people's freedom, but enhances it. what i have tried to do as president is to apply those same principles. and when it comes to education, what i've said is we've got to reform schools that are not working. we something called race to the top. we've said, we will give you more money if you initiate reforms. as a consequence, had 46 states around the country have made a real difference. but what i've also said is, let's hire another 100,000 math and science teachers to make sure we maintain our technological lead and our people are skilled and able to succeed. and hard-pressed states right now cannot all do that. in fact, we've seen layoffs of hundreds of thousands of teachers over the last several years, and governor romney doesn't think any more teachers. i do, because i think that is the kind

they need, they resort to things like self medicating. the science has proven, research has proven this is a fact. our all of these or substance abuse, depression, those are the most common diagnoses in ptsd. what we're faced with is an archaic military justice system that has not adapted, even though their own their own military law reviews show ptsd and substance abuse-related misconduct are close the related, that there is a nexus that one comes from the other. what we are addressing -- we're not asking the military to not have people held accountable for misconduct. if you need to punish someone because they illegally or in violation of regulation of used the illegal substances, go ahead and punish them within the system, but that does not mean you up to go to the extent of imposing administrative sanctions that have an impact on the rest of their life such as taking away all their benefits and then putting a person without a safety net out into the community where they then become a problem in my community. and all they do is end of draining the resources of my community. and

and said we have a piece of technology, we want to take it out of the framework of being a science fair project and give it to the opportunity to take on the goliath problem of the 21st century, bad water, we call the project slingshot because slingshot was the little piece of technology that was given to david and as the kid i remember the story of david and goliath and the moral to me was you use technology properly, slingshot and you will take out goliath. >> rose: so what do we have here? i want to show it in just a moment. >> so in this little accurate scale model of a shipping container which could be put into a village, is -- >> rose: shipping container. there is an actual model of a standard shipping container, this is eight feet by ten feet by 20 feet, here is the actual scale model next to a person of the slingshot. >> rose: right. >> it makes 1,000-liters of water a day and even if you closeup at night and hopefully the women that will run this downtown, it will sit inside here all night filling up thousand liter reservoirs that are accessible outside so all day and all nigh
